The Harvard Graduate Student Conference on International and Global History (Con-IH) is organized by Harvard graduate students across departments who are immersed in the field of international history. This year, speakers will be addressing the theme of Gender and Empire. What does it mean to study Gender and Empire now, in this precarious moment, as we face a massive international public health crisis, global anti-Black, Brown, Asian, and Indigenous racism and police brutality, transphobic violence, and ongoing social uprisings?
Please join Con IH on Saturday January 30, 9-11AM Eastern, to kick off the first panel of the semester. Our speakers will be addressing Performance, Bodies, and Beauty in colonial Bombay and present-day Lagos, Nigeria.
Pratichi Priyambada (UC Irvine), “Entertainers, Slaves, or Prostitutes?” Examining Official Categorization of Indian Female Dancers in Colonial Bombay Presidency”
Ololade Faniyi (University of Ibadan, Nigeria), “Women of Lagos: Global Bodies, Modern Aesthetics”
Commentators: Dr. Sravanthi Kollu (Harvard) and Dr. Simidele Dosekun (King’s College London).
